Vote yes since UEFI has standard firmware interface and removes those tricky BIOS implementations and SMI. Just like open-source software, it is easy to be hacked at the beginning but would evolve rapidly and eventually will be safer.

By the specs, pretty sure it's not a myth; by the implementation, not so sure :lol:

That's one of the reason UEFI was created, so let's hope the best :)
